Our Program

The USC Epstein Family Center for Sports Medicine at Keck Medicine of USC in Los Angeles, Glendale and El Segundo specializes in treating sports-related and recreational injuries affecting the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, neck and spine.

Our team treats everyone from professional athletes and Olympians to high school athletes and weekend warriors. Our physicians are the official doctors of the USC Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. Working at our new state-of-the-art facility at the Toyota Sports Performance Center in El Segundo, our physicians are the official orthopaedic medical services provider of the Los Angeles Kings hockey team and also treat the Los Angeles Jr. Kings youth team and local sports teams.

We offer expertise in a full range of operative and nonoperative treatment regimens for injuries such as tears to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus in the knee, shoulder instability, rotator cuff problems, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement and tennis elbow. We also have a special interest in cartilage preservation procedures for the knee and hip.

In addition to being experts in minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures, as well as replacement and reconstructive procedures, our specialists are highly regarded in total shoulder replacement, as well as treatment of complex fractures of the shoulder and elbow.

Our world-renowned experts have worked or are currently working with many professional teams, including the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Galaxy, LA Kings, Anaheim Ducks and the United States women’s national soccer team.

Our Approach

We treat our patients with a customized approach. By tailoring our treatment and rehabilitation plans to our patients’ sport-specific needs, we help empower them to achieve their personal goals for rehabilitation and injury prevention.

We collaborate across disciplines to ensure our patients receive the most comprehensive care. As an integral part of this multidisciplinary care, physical therapists use specialized skills to assess and treat injuries, prevent pain or further damage, train the muscles needed to participate in a particular sport and, ultimately, enable patients to return to their sport or activity safely and without limitations.

Sports Medicine Physical Therapy

Sports medicine physical therapy is a form of physical therapy (PT) that specializes in preventing and treating injuries that occur as a result of training for and participating in athletic activities. Our sports PT staff focuses on the unique musculoskeletal injuries that occur in athletics, using specialized skills to assess and treat the injury, prevent pain or further damage, train the muscles needed to participate in a particular sport and, ultimately, enable patients to return to their sport or activity safely and without limitations. Sports PT is provided on an outpatient basis at Keck Hospital of USC by therapists who are board-certified in this specialty by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). This means that they not only are licensed physical therapists, but also have met rigorous national standards of education, experience and clinical expertise in the specialty of sports medicine.

Among the conditions we treat:

  • Elbow and shoulder injuries, including shoulder instability and rotator cuff disorders
  • Injuries to knee ligaments and cartilage
  • Injuries to ankle ligaments
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendon injuries
  • Overuse injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
